Advice on clipped planchet

I’m currently looking at a Nova Constellatio, I was wondering if the planchet being clipped would affect the value.
I’m still learning so any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    At 10:00? I would have guessed it was a rim bump due to the disruption of the denticles.

    Ok, that makes sense. It was noted as clipped in the description when it originally sold at auction. I’m assuming this would mess with the value ?

    I agree with @JBK and from your photo I don't see the Blakesley Effect. Most clipped planchets have this effect that I have seen. I would say damage and not a clip. JMO
    “The Blakesley Effect” — Weakness in the design near the rim and in the rim itself on the opposite side of the coin where the clip occurs is known as the Blakesley Effect. While not all clipped planchets exhibit the Blakesley Effect, it’s prominent on many such errors.

  • Thank you @jesbroken and @jbk. I appreciate the information. I definitely still have a lot to learn.

    i would have blown up the original trueview because, imo, it is tough to tell if that is damage at k10 or not. we do have an apparent clip/blakesly.

    it isn't impossible to have no blakesly and also have a coincidental rim bump opposite a clip, especially the older the coin.

    I did see that but the denticles look disrupted, and the weakness of the rim at the opposite side of the coin actually seems to extend along that whole side.

    Not a clip. Damaged.

  • I really appreciate everyone’s input. I don’t have anyone else to talk about coins with, so everyone taking the time to share their knowledge means a lot.
    Here are a few more photos the seller posted. Not sure if this helps.

    in trying to see if i could find that coin on CF, i did come across some other potential examples.

    they MAY just be thin-edged flans or some type of collar issue, perhaps poorly/inconsistent made flans. i'm no expert by any means on these.

    @Christie716... Does the PCGS slab label say 'Clipped Planchet'?? If not, does it say 'Damaged'? You did not show a picture of the slab label. Cheers, RickO

    Slab pics make it appear damaged.

    Looks like someone dropped it. A lot can happen in over 200+ years.
